Smooth Moves by Swhackers

  • Odell Beckham Jr. ranked third in the league in scoring with 35.60 points against a projected 19.83 and has now overachieved in four straight games.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Ryan Fitzpatrick. He ranked second in the league in scoring with 36.07 points.
  • Doug Baldwin seemed to take offense to this week's projected points. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 140.1%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Benched RB LeGarrette Blount, who scored fewer points than any RB in the starting lineup with 5.30.
  • With 19.20 points, Sammy Watkins ranked 10th in the league in scoring among WRs this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some people are born losers, others develop it over time. Fortunately, there's a cure: Winning
  • Did not start Rob Gronkowski, who scored 18.70 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 81.7%.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Jacob Tamme, who scored 6.60 points against his projected 12.72.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Devonta Freeman during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in six straight games after scoring 7.20 points against a projected 20.63 this week.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 2.70 points for Latavius Murray this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 22.9% of a projected point total of 11.80.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 14

Larry Brown Was - RB 1973 vs. Philadelphia 150 rushing yards, 1 TD rush, 105 receiving yards, 3 TD catches One of only two top 10 fantasy efforts since the AFL/NFL merger to take place in the 70’s decade, Brown’s four touchdown, 265-total yard performance against Philly was most noteworthy for the running backs’ work in the passing game.

Brown took each of his three catches to the end zone, scoring on catches of 64, 27 and 14 yards. Brown also added an eight-yard rushing score to close out a Redskins’ 38-20 victory. For those few fantasy leaguers of the time, like the founding fathers of fantasy football, the Greater Oakland Professional Pigskin Prognosticators League, Week 14 was very likely championship week (since the regular season was just 14 weeks at the time), and there’s a good chance Brown’s performance was a key component for some of those who won fantasy titles in ’73.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
